Spinal disk or vertebrae injury. Movement or displacement of a spinal disk or of the space between vertebrae sounds more serious than “strained neck or back.” Insurance adjusters often award more compensation to claimants who describe neck or back injuries in specific medical terms rather than simply saying “strained,” even if it is exactly the same injury. Emergency rooms and orthopedists usually take X-rays of the area of the spine -- lumbar or lumbosacral (lower), thoracic (middle), or cervical (upper) -- in which an injured person complains of pain. Those X-rays may reveal some slight abnormality either in a disk or in the space between vertebrae. Vertebrae are described by reference to the number of the vertebrae in question, such as “slight narrowing in L9-L5 spacing.”
out of all scotch and notch Beyond all bounds or limits incalculable, immeasurable, unlimited, unbounded. Rarely heard today, this expression is said to refer to the boundary lines, or scotches, and the corners, or notches, used in the children&rsquo s game of hopscotch.
A long shot is a contestant in any competition, most commonly athletic or political, with little chance of winning therefore, with high odds in the betting. By extension, the phrase has come to refer to any bet or undertaking having little chance of success but great potential should the unexpected occur. Long shot connotes greatness of quantity or quality, if only in potential. Therefore, by a long shot means &lsquo by a large amount or degree,&rsquo and the negative not by a long shot means &lsquo not at all,&rsquo &lsquo in no way, shape or form,&rsquo or &lsquo hopelessly out of the question.&rsquo
If you suffered any kind of head injury, check your medical records for any notation of the injury: concussion, a period of unconsciousness, however brief, or dizziness, disorientation, or nausea. Make specific mention of it in your claim even if other injuries seem more serious. And if you have any long-term effects such as continuing headaches or dizziness, report them to your doctor and emphasize in your claim that you are still suffering from the effects of your head injury.
LSD produces tolerance, so some users who take the drug repeatedly must take progressively higher doses to achieve the state of intoxication that they had previously achieved. This is an extremely dangerous practice, given the unpredictability of the drug.

Average sea ice extent for July 7567 ended up fifth lowest in the satellite record. This reflects weather conditions that were not favorable for ice loss. It will be important to monitor August 7567, as weather conditions and storm events during this month have been closely related to the seasonal minimum sea ice extent in the recent years.
The user may also suffer impaired depth and time perception, with distorted perception of the size and shape of objects, movements, color, sound, touch and own body image. Sensations may seem to cross over, giving the feeling of hearing colors and seeing sounds. These changes can be frightening and can cause panic. Some LSD users also experience severe, terrifying thoughts and feelings, fear of losing control, fear of insanity and death.
If you find any mention in your medical records of such abnormality in a numbered vertebra, repeat that diagnosis word-for-word in your negotiations with the insurance company as a way of demonstrating the seriousness of your injury, regardless of how much or how little treatment you received.
LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide), first synthesized in 6988, is an extremely potent hallucinogen. It is manufactured from lysergic acid, which is found in ergot, a fungus that grows on rye and other grains.

More than 75 million children live in a home without the physical presence of a father. Millions more have dads who are physically present, but emotionally absent. If it were classified as a disease, fatherlessness would be an epidemic worthy of attention as a national emergency.
Based on a recent modeling study, Florian S évellec and colleagues propose that the ongoing loss of Arctic sea ice may disrupt the AMOC. The sea ice loss leads to a freshening of the northern North Atlantic and stronger heat absorption at the surface. This means that waters in the northern North Atlantic are less dense than they used to be, which has the effect of providing a cap, or lid, that may inhibit the northward flow of warm waters at the surface and the eventual sinking of these waters. The authors suggest that the Arctic sea ice decline may help to explain observations suggesting that the AMOC may be slowing down, and why there is a regional minimum in warming (sometimes called the Warming Hole) over the subpolar North Atlantic.
